The plant is located on the same site as the elevator, which the company acquired in 2019. The project to modernize the elevator and build a new feed mill worth 3.5 billion rubles was launched in 2021.

Currently, process equipment is being installed at the facility, the work has been completed by 90%. Modern equipment from the world leader in the field of high-tech solutions for grain processing is installed here. These are lines for receiving and cleaning raw materials, receiving big bags (soft packaging), heat treatment of grain, dosing and grinding mixtures, granulating, spraying and bulk dispensing of finished products.

The enterprise is completing work on connecting the equipment of the feed mill and piping the premises with technological pipelines.

The installed equipment will allow the production of feed using whole grains and liquid components such as vegetable oil, which will increase the nutritional value of the finished mixture. In addition, the plant will automatically granulate compound feed and spray vitamin mixtures, and the function of heat treatment of loose feed will eliminate the appearance of harmful microorganisms in finished feed.
